About Colin Finkemeyer

THE AUTHOR: Gunner Finkemeyer, alias Colin, Finky, Baron, Sandy or Stinky, was one of the lucky ones to survive being a World War II PoW and return home.

Colin was an ammunition number and gun loader for 'George' Troop 15th Battery and a proud member of the 4th Anti-Tank Regiment.

He is one of the many youths who loved Australia with boyish pride, and who were prepared to do what had to be done at the time to help defend their country from invasion by the Japanese.

As luck would have it, he happened to be in a number of the same camps as that great man, Weary Dunlop, and is one of the many who owe their lives to him.

Finky was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to complete his studies in Commerce (in Personnel) at Melbourne University.
He was able to spend his working life with men and managers in Australian owned and operated manufacturing companies. And he loved it.
